Mayan Man

Zak's, originally uploaded by Neorelix.

So we're out yesterday evening trying to find some good subject matter to shoot in the Castle Hill area of town, home to Cambridge's very own castle - in 1068. Now it's just a mound. It's a nice area, the highest part of Cambridge, and has some atmospheric streets and historic buildings but the light was dull, there was little going on and the Siren call of The Castle, an Adnams pub so well worth making a beeline for when you come here, was getting louder when we passed this fella. He's all that's left of a somewhat-authentic Mexican restaurant called Zak's which closed a while ago and now sadly the windows are smashed and boarded up. For a better photographer's version of the same subject go to this page (and whilst there scroll down to his Cambridge Sunset - definitely worth checking out).
